In this episode of Baby Crazy, we're talking with Dr. Dona Matthews about intelligence in kids. We’re asking what is intelligence? How do you define it, encourage it, and develop it?
Dr. Matthews is a developmental psychologist and author -- with Dr. Joanna Foster -- of Beyond Intelligence: Secrets for Raising Happily Productive Kids. She has taught child and adolescent development at the University of Toronto and Hunter College, City University of New York, and writes a parenting blog for Psychology Today. She has been involved in teaching, writing, counseling, consulting, and conducting research on children and adolescents since 1985.
